Dan joined Rapleys in 2016 to establish a dedicated Neighbourly Matters service area within the Building Consultancy team delivering Rights to Light, Daylight & Sunlight Amenity, Party Walls and Access Arrangement services.
Formerly, Dan had spent over a decade with Watts Group Limited (previously known as Watts & Partners) working for numerous clients primarily within the commercial property sector. Here he honed his skills and built a reputation for specialising in Neighbourly Matters besides undertaking other traditional Building Surveying services such as Technical Due Diligence and Defects Analysis.
Dan prides himself in establishing and building strong relationships with clients and project teams. His focus on Neighbourly Matters centres around risk management and ensuring clients can maximise the development potential from their sites. When acting ‘the other side of the fence’ he ensures clients assets are well represented and their assets are suitably protected.
Dan is Secretary of the Severnside branch of the Pyramus & Thisbe Club who promote excellence in the field of Party Wall practice. He also sits on the RICS Great Western Committee. He has mentored many Building Surveyors through their Assessment of Professional Competence and he regularly gives seminars on Neighbourly Matters to developers, solicitors and professionals within the property industry.
